Mascara is my favorite beauty product.  It is one of the three items I use every time I leave the house.  I think it is also the most difficult product to make clean.  I’ve tried several that I just didn’t like at all…they wore off, smudged or flaked.  These five are really good!

First is the Juice Beauty Phyto-Pigments Ultra-Natural Mascara.  This mascara is true to it’s name.  It creates the most natural looking lashes.  The fluffy brush coats your lashes evenly without clumping.  It leaves your lashes feeling very soft.  It is smudge proof and flake proof.  Great for contact wearers like me.  Juice Beauty makes several of my favorite products including the new serum I shared here and this product I wear every day.

The 100% Pure Fruit Pigmented Ultra Lengthening Mascara is a great mascara if you prefer a color as opposed to Black. It comes in 4 colors: Black Tea, Dark Chocolate, Blueberry (a very dark navy) and Blackberry (a very dark purple).  This mascara has a fun, fruit scent to it when you open the tube but it doesn’t linger.  I used the Black Tea and loved the really dark color and fullness.  I shared more about 100% Pure and their full color line here.

A big surprise is the Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara.  I couldn’t believe it had such a great rating when I checked the ingredients on EWG. (I can share my findings if you are interested.)  This mascara gives great coverage and volume in a velvety dark black.  It is great for touchups over any other mascara, too.

Beautycounter has two mascaras: Lengthening and Volumizing.  I actually use these two mascaras together to get a maximum effect.  I’ve shared the Lengthening Mascara here when it was first introduced a few years ago.  It created really great length and highly defined lashes.  When I’m wanting more fullness as well, I layer the Volumizing on top.  These mascaras both have great staying power all day.

Do you use any of these?  Have you tried other clean mascaras you like?  Leave a comment below and let me know.  I love hearing from you!  You can also shop all my Clean Beauty Favorites here.

Nordstrom Beauty Discovery: Cle de Peau Concealer

It’s easy to get in a routine when it comes to make up.  My need for a new concealer lead me back to an old favorite and the discovery of some new products from Cle de Peau.

For years, I used the cult favorite concealer from this fabulous brand. I discovered it as a new mom with tired eyes and dark circles. It was my go -o for years. Now as a mom of teenagers, I feel like those dark circles have returned!
